I've been reading the catechism as part of the Year of Faith. Of course, I've also been reading the catechism since it was released in English when I was working at a Catholic bookstore…when I was still a Buddhist! :O Seriously, I love this little book. I take it with me everywhere. It's either in my car or in my bag or in my hands. And when I'm working on something else, I often cast longing looks at it until I can get back to studying it. The photo below shows my much-used and much-loved paperback copy after (yes, after) I cleaned out a bunch of old bookmarks to make room for new ones during this new year of study.

Learn more: Read more about the Year of Faith at the official website or at the USCCB or at EWTN and many other places too numerous to list. Other resources include a Catholic Bible study guide by Fr. Mitch Pacwa (Kindle version or paperback) and daily brief readings in the Catechism delivered to your email inbox and also available online. This is truly a wonderful resource and I have enjoyed my mornings with the Catechism very much since this program began on Oct 11. We're not far along yet and you have plenty of time to join in. Please do! You can join in the discussion on the site and learn a lot that way and share what you know, and also share the journey with Catholics and enquirers from all over the world. (About 75,000 people were signed up as of a few days ago and more are coming on board every day.) Also for the Year of Faith you can find the entire set of sixteen documents of the Second Vatican Council online at EWTN.

Announcing a new site, Christian Diversity, which isn’t mine but I am a contributor. We are a group of Christians from various backgrounds and traditions who have come together to cordially present and discuss views on Christian doctrines. The site has been up for a few days and our first topic has been Original Sin. Why not begin at the beginning, huh? ;)
